It’s a good thing fall is just around the corner, because we’ve been seriously craving fall recipes like this Roasted Butternut Squash and Cranberry Salad. This autumn salad is loaded with healthy and clean ingredients making this not only delicious but completely guilt free.
The base of this salad is a mixture of Israeli couscous and quinoa for a healthy dose of protein. It’s a pretty well known fact that both these ingredients are pretty bland. But not when you add a whole bunch of flavorful toppings with a killer dressing. In addition to the couscous and quinoa, we’ve got pumpkin seeds, cranberries, and red onion. However the dressing is the real winner here.
To complete this dish we tossed it in a butternut squash and poppy seed dressing that can be thrown together in a flash. And by flash I mean 2 minutes. Add chopped butternut squash, honey, white vinegar, and garlic in a blender to make this tasty treat; it’s the perfect addition to this salad and really ties together these scrumptious fall flavors.
